    For some reason, I can never get enough green tea, it must be chilled though.

      Cold tea? How awful!

      I love green tea too but it must be a nice hot one. Other than that, I like good old fashioned PG Tips, nice and strong, with milk but no sugar.

        I like some hot teas, such as mint, or apple flavored. big_smile

        I've had this one type of tea before called Moon Tea, it's served hot.. it had this really strange, yet really good, mint flavor to it.

      Me TOO, I CAN NOT get enough Green Tea, I drink it iced this time of year but hot in the colder months.  It's so good for you.  I like Oolong on occasion to.

      I guess most people here would not have heard of it. But Malaysia has a type of tea called "Teh Tarik" . A direct translation would be "Pulled Tea)

      It's nice...

        Why it is called so? As for as I know tea leaf is picked.not pulled.

      What is British style black tea? Is it like coffee?

        you know black tea (e.g. english breakfast) made just right - warm the teapot up before pouring hot water in; let it steep for about 5 minutes or so - pour it into a nice bone china cup (if u have 1)  and add some milk.  put a tea cozy over the teapot to keep it nice and hot for the next cup.  And, if you have one use a bone china tea pot.

        Sometimes, I used loose tea leaves too.   Loose tea leaves I think, are the nicest tasting teas whatever the type you are having.  Like green tea - I like it best when I use loose tea leaves.

          I'll have to give some of that a try one of these days, sounds interesting and tasty!

            yea try it and if you like it - nice teapots and cups are easy to come by at second hand shops and garage sales sometimes - don't have to buy new. My favorite teapot cost me $1.00.   I have my special tea pot and cups just for green tea too.  something about having the right teapot and cup to drink it in makes it even that much more special for me for some reason.

              I'll probably end up getting some sort of glass/cup/thing to drink tea from, I've always just used an old fashioned mug. big_smile

    Tea has to be hot for me. I really enjoy the loose brew teas with the bits of fruit and berries mixed in. We have a local place that sells the bags of loose tea. They are really good.

      I like Earl Grey tea with bergamot. Tea is a very interesting thing. it depends so much on the way you make it. On the pot and cup you use, whether you add milk or sugar or not. Wether you use bagged or loose tea. What company produced it from what region, etc. If you want to get its most exquisite aroma and flavour out, you need fine china, loose leaf tea and some research how to make it.

    I wish I could say that picture of tea looks good, but it looks like "pea and spinach tea".   smile

    For some reason, green tea makes me a little nauseous.  I don't know - it's like I can't get it strong enough, so it's like hot water.  I like the plain, old, Chinese tea, English Breakfast, or just Lipton, Tetley, or Twinings.  Unless it's Twinings, a little sugar.

      The photo is Long Jing (Dragon Well) tea, "China's Queen of teas" wink
      Very good, in its place of origin -Hangzhou- they even have a dish with shrimp and longjing tea leaves, delicious. big_smile

    I love black tea! Oolong is excellent too, but I prefer black. When I used to make a lot of hot tea from loose tea, I would mix black and oolong.

    I like chamomile tea for it's calming effect. I also drink other herbal teas like Pau D'Arco, Green Tea, and mint (mint with more spearmint than peppermint in it because I've read that too much peppermint on a regular basis can affect your heart). I like the berry flavored herbal teas as well.
